This weekend I spent some time rereading Garr Reynolds great book Presentation Zen: Simple Ideas on Presentation Design and Delivery. Among the many important lessons in the book were three critical questions every trainer should be asking him or herself for every presentation you do:
1. What’s your point?
2. Why does it matter (to the audience)?
3. If your audience remembers only one thing from your presentation what should it be?
If someone was to sit you down and ask you these three questions regarding your next presentation or training session how easily would you be able to answer them?
I would encourage you to take some time as you move into a new year and reflect on these three questions in relation to each of the training sessions you deliver. This exercise will bring great clarity to your understanding of the purpose of that training session and will help you deliver the material in a more effective manner.
If you have not read Presentation Zen: Simple Ideas on Presentation Design and Delivery, I would strongly encourage you to do so. This book caused me to change all my PowerPoint presentations, which I strongly believe has resulted in a better learning experience for people attending my courses and seminars.
